Lindsay Chetaud is 15-going-16, but already showing lots of beauty queen potentials
Lindsay Chetaud is still young – fiddling between 15 and 16 – but looks so much like a full-blown woman ready to take on the world in the palm of her hands.
Unlike some ‘halfies’, this young lass is triple-hyphenated. French-Portuguese-Filipina. And among the showbiz efforts I read, she actually auditioned for Pinoy Big Brother Teens, the Palmolive Circle of 10 and was recently in the Philippine International Motor Show for Nissan X-Trail.
ABS-CBN’s Star Magic might have already jumped the gun in signing her up. And if she does not shoot to popularity like Bea Alonzo between now and 2017, there just might be a good chance that she will go the pageant route. The unique thing about her is that she has already done work for TV5 (Artista Academy) and GMA-7 (Station ID) prior. So it’s Kapamilya or bust or future Bb. Pilipinas, perhaps?
Will Lindsay become a showbiz star before she even she gets to take a pageant dip?
What fate awaits this girl, Lindsay? :-)

This is a big shout-out to the fans, followers, admirers and supporters of Mister International Philippines 2014 Neil Perez. Just before he departs next week for the big competition in Seoul, Korea, do watch his life story first – and his TV acting debut for that matter.
Tonight, “Magpakailanman” on GMA-7 will air “PNP Pogi na Pulis: The PO2 Mariano Flormata Jr. Story” which will have Neil playing his adult self together with acting veterans Roi Vinzon and Irma Adlawan (playing his parents) and Kristoffer Martin (as the teenage Neil).
Tune in at around 8:00PM (give or take five minutes or so) to catch it. ;-)

Once more, Tropical Storm Mario wreaked havoc on the planned out-of-town schedule of the Miss World Philippines 2014 Official Candidates. Instead of leaving for the swimsuit competition in Caramoan Island, the ladies had to actually take a rain check and wait for the weather to improve. So as not to waste their time here in Manila, a TV guesting was added for the weekend where all twenty-six of them trooped to the GMA-7 studio of the musical variety show ‘Sunday All-Stars’ to promote the beauty competition. Two of the male hosts – Christian Bautista and Andre Paras – were able to interview some of the hopefuls, including Lorraine Kendrickson, Valerie Weigmann, Nicole Donesa, Alexa Kirby and Kristin Estoque, much to the delight of the pageant fans in the audience.

The confirmed delegates of Mister International 2014 to date
Neil will portray himself in an upcoming episode of “Magpakailanman” on GMA-7.
Very soon, Misters of the Philippines-International 2014 Neil Perez will be leaving for Seoul, Korea to represent the Philippines in Mister International 2014
. With the male contest taking more than two weeks of pre-pageant activities before the scheduled finals night on October 18, our Police Officer will have his hands full outshining the other foreign delegates and aiming to bring home the crown to his countrymen.
In the meantime, Neil will play himself in an upcoming episode of “Magpakailanman“ on GMA-7 where his life story will be featured. He used his amateur acting skills in scenes with veteran actress Irma Adlawan, teen actors Kristoffer Martin and Vincent Magbanua (who played the young Neil Perez).
By next week, our rep will be busy as a bee preparing his wardrobe and travel essentials, as well as doing some last-minute Q&A polishing with his trainer Macoy Manlapaz.
Looking forward to seeing Neil in Mister International 2014! ;-)
It will all happen at the SM MOA Arena on October 12, 2014.
Ms. Cory Quirino of CQGQ
Trust Ms. Cory Quirino to fill the SM Mall of Asia Arena for the Coronation Night of Miss World Philippines 2014 on October 12. While the Official Candidates have not yet been announced – let alone screened – she will definitely undertake to make this year her biggest production for the nationals. With the outgoing titleholder being Miss World 2013 Megan Young, there is simply no room for a ho-hum conduct of the finals.
And with GMA-7’s help, the pageant will definitely get a boost in terms of scope and coverage. Do I see Mikael Daez (Megan’s rumored boyfriend) solo-hosting? I doubt it, but if he is joined by Tom Rodriguez and Carla Abellana, why not?
Watch out for my coverage of Miss World Philippines 2014 starting very soon! :-D
Diva Montelaba: Will the GMA-7 TV actress bite the pageant bug for 2014?
The whispers are no longer hushed. The buzz is getting louder by the day. Rumor has it that GMA-7 actress Diva Montelaba is possibly considering taking a new route different from her showbiz career – she is currently in the cast of the top-rating teleserye “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real” (The Two Mrs. Reals) – and that is to join the beeline for Miss World Philippines 2014.
There are also floating talks that Ms. Cory Quirino could be shying away from mestizas and mixed-race Filipinas for this year and is leaning towards a very Pinay-looking candidate for Miss World 2014. And this kind of chika tends to augur well for dear Diva. I’ve witnessed the blossoming of her career – from being a Starstruck runner-up all the way to becoming an excellent jazz/hip-hop dancer (who also sings on the side) and a competent dramatic performer. And if schedules won’t be a problem with her taping commitments, there is a good chance we might see her jumping to a new direction now instead of 2015.

Is KF (possibly in coordination with GMA Artist Center) ready to field this 5’8″-ish stunner? Or is there another beauty from the network (watch out for my blog on that tomorrow) being eyed to take part instead? ;-)

If you failed to watch it live last Friday night at Solaire, then you can catch the TV telecast of the Mutya ng Pilipinas 2014 Coronation Night starting at 12noon today on GMA- 7. Witness the ascent to the crowns of Eva Psychee Patalinjug, Glennifer Perido and Patrizia Bosco as they battled it out with the 27 other candidates in what is considered to be the strongest batch of hopefuls in the decades-old national pageant.
Don’t forget! It all starts during lunchtime. ;-)
